Small Town Garden, Rushden
Address: Gordon Street, Rushden, Northampton.
Client: Ms. Rachel T
Status: Completed 2017
Project Description: Small Town Garden
An existing small town garden in Rushden required total rejuvenation, access was difficult for the landscaping team as the house was in the middle of a 1960's terrace and the garden could only be accessed using a narrow passageway requiring plenty of wheelbarrow work. The garden was to be designed with low maintenance in mind and was to comprise of a small sun terrace leading from the sitting room double doors using steps down to a lower level.
The old fence was repaired and renewed, then new wooden raised planters were built using treated landscape sleepers filled with fresh new compost rich topsoil to accommodate simple herbaceous plants and evergreen clipped box ball planting.
A new artificial lawn replaced the tired worn out moss filled lawn, new stepping stones were set into the lawn to access a new shed and garden gate. The existing Clematis Montana was pruned and retained.
Space was provided for a simple garden bench and a glass screen was to be installed as part of phase two later in the year.
